"Gotham" Debuts First Look at Mr. Freeze
In plenty of time for the second season of the hit Netflix drama, Funko is expanding its Pop! Marvel series with four figures based on Daredevil.
The first wave of 3.75-inch figures features three versions of Matt Murdock — in his civilian clothes, in his black vigilante costume, and in his Daredevil armor — plus Wilson Fisk. Sorry, no Foggy Nelson, yet. There’s also a Daredevil bobble-head keychain.
As we begin the countdown to New York Comic Con, Funko has unveiled its first wave of event-exclusive merchandise, including a Batman: Arkham Asylum (Detective Mode) 6-inch Dorbz, a Walking Dead bloody Daryl Dixon Vinyl Idolz, and a Tenth Doctor Pop! figure in a spacesuit.
They’re joined by the likes of the Star Wars Platinum Greedo Hikari figure, the classic Battlestar Galactica Commander Cylon Pop! figure, the Bravest Warriors Catbug Orange Glow Pop! figure, and the Futurama Alternate Universe Fry and Leela Pop! two-pack.
Seven months after launching its Marvel Collector Corps, Funko has announced a similar subscription box service for Star Wars fans.
In partnership with StarWars.com, the toy company will debut Smuggler’s Bounty, featuring exclusive Star Wars collectibles, apparel and accessories. The first box, titled Star Wars: The Force Awakens (unsurprisingly enough), will ship in November.
After releasing Pop! and Dorbz collectibles based on Batman ’66, Funko has tuned back in at the same Bat-time, same Bat-channel with Vinyl Idolz figures from Vinyl Sugar inspired by the classic television series.
Arriving in October, the collection features 8-inch versions of Adam West’s Batman, Burt Wad’s Robin, Yvonne Craig’s Batgirl and Cesar Romero’s Joker, with the Clown Prince of Crime most closely resembling his TV counterpart. Still, there’s something almost charming about the Boy Wonder’s glassy-eyed stare.
While we know we’re not supposed to touch Lola, Funko is making it tough to resist with this upcoming addition to its Pop! Rides line.
Arriving in October, the new Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. collectible features Director Phil Coulson with his prized possession, the high-flying, flamethrowing 1962 Chevrolet Corvette better known as Lola. And, yes, Director Coulson, we realize Lola’s not just a collectible.
Never has Gotham’s seedy underworld looked as cuddly as it does right now.
Funko has announced it’s adding Fox’s Gotham to its Pop! Heroes line, which already includes vinyl figures based on fellow DC Comics-based television shows Arrow and The Flash.
Welcome to Store Tour, ROBOT 6’s weekly exploration of comics shops, and the people who run them. Each Sunday we feature a different store, and also get to know the person behind the register.
This week’s store is Emerald City Comics, located at 4902 113th Ave. N. in Clearwater, Florida. We spoke with general manager Chad Rivard.
Funko has unveiled a new series of Pop! Heroes vinyl figures inspired by the video game Batman: Arkham Knight.
Debuting in September, the line will feature Batman, Harley Quinn, Scarecrow and, of course, Arkham Knight. Whether additional figures will be released remains to be seen.
Funko may have saved the best for last, concluding 10 waves of Comic-Con International exclusives with the debut of the first toys tied to next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
They’re a Pop! Heroes two-pack, featuring bobblehead figures of the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel (the former with a Batarang, the latter in flight). Funko isn’t offering a preorder option this year, so collectors will have to wait in line at the convention, and hope supplies hold out.
Agent Carter fans will have to wait until early 2016 for the continued adventures of everyone’s favorite Strategic Scientific Reserve agent, but only until August to get their hands on the Pop! Marvel Peggy Carter figure.
Funko has unveiled the 3.75-inch bobble-head, which strikes a formidable pose, complete with sharp blue suit, red fedora and vial of Steve Rogers’ blood. Hopefully Howard Stark and Edwin Jarvis will follow.
Funko, always at the ready with Marvel movie merchandise, has revealed its Pop! Vinyl figures of Ant-Man and his nemesis Yellowjacket from the upcoming film.
The company also announced Ant-Man Wacky Wobblers, which are those bobblehead statues, but no images are available. Both lines arrives in June.
When you’ve recovered from the cuteness overdose induced by those pint-sized Guardians of the Galaxy and Batman Family figures, Funko and Vinyl Sugar have another fix waiting: the new line of Classic Marvel Dorbz.
Debuting in August, the 3-inch vinyl figures capture Marvel heroes and villains, ranging from Spider-Man to Mystique and Scarlet Witch to Iron Man, all in their classic comic book costumes. Hence the name “Classic Marvel Dorbz.”
Amid the seemingly endless parade of Avengers: Age of Ultron tie-ins, one very important release — perhaps the most important — has largely slipped beneath the radar (well, mine, in any case): Deadpool’s Chimichanga Truck from Funko’s Pop! Vinyl Rides line.
Showcased in February at Toy Fair 2015, the truck — emblazoned with a “Deadpool’s Chimichangas” logo — comes complete with a removable 3 3/4-inch Deadpool figure that holds a sword in one hand, and grips a delicious chimichanga in the other.
Add one more figure to Funko’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Pop! Vinyl series: the Scarlet Witch.
Arriving in August, long after most of the others have debuted, Wanda joins a lineup that so far features Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Ultron, The Vision, Hawkeye and Black Widow, plus the Marvel Collector Corps-exclusive Hulkbuster.
Now we’re only waiting for Quicksilver, who seems to be taking his time for once …
Arrow, Black Canary, the Dark Archer, Deathstroke, Flash, Reverse Flash and Captain Cold are among several characters from the shows that can be found in this ReAction figure lineup, which models its look on the popular action figure format from the ’80s and ’90s.
